Blue kitchens. Will you choose the colour of the year?

Kitchen colour scheme ideas - 02 Jan 2020

As we embark into a new decace, Classic Blue remains "a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on" says Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of Pantone.

Classic Blue's resemblance to the sky at dusk provokes calmness and tranquility. Eiseman says " We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy  and confidence that is expressed by Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue.

Our selection of blue hues have proven to be a popular choice with customers. Not only does blue it provoke peacefulness, it's also a highly versatile colour.

Blue shades look great when combined with light greys and white, which means you can incorparate a bold colour into your kitchen, without making it dark and gloomy.

Natural wood textures also work wonderfully with blue to bring warmth to the space.

Here are some of our favourite blue kitchens.
